  1. Hello, Jo. I believe these siltstones and sandstones are fossiliferous but I didn’t manage to find any fossils – except Chondrites trace fossils.

  2. I thought it was yet another spectacular beach and had intended to return the next day for more photographs of the geology – but got diverted because there is so much to see in Dingle.
